At the Kinus Mechanchos Chabad 5779, Mechanchos from around the world gathered to farbreng and inspire each other in their unique Shlichus of Chinuch. Throughout the Kinus, there were various workshops and sessions that provided practical take-home ideas and food for thought to hone the Mechanchos’ approach to Chinuch.
Mechanchos were asked to make one Hachlata Tova for the coming year in Chinuch and share it publicly on a “Wall of Seeds” for others to gain inspiration as well. Dozens of Chabad Mechanchos participated, planting “seeds” of Hachlatos that will surely blossom into an incredible impact on Talmidim and Talmidos for generations to come.
In honor of Chai Elul, we have chosen 18 of these Hachlatos that were taken on during the Kinus to share with our community. We hope to inspire many more Chabad educators and parents to take on meaningful Hachlatos for the new year ahead. May these Hachlatos Tovos help us achieve a Ksiva Vichasima Tova, L’Shana Tova Umesuka.
